    We've seen this before (I think it's another exact duplicate), but still sad to see these two chicks didn't make it. 😢

    Yes, sadly, chicks do often die. They will help feed other animals, including sheathbills and their chicks. Nothing is wasted.

    White sea bird eating dead chick and what looks like another decomposing chick above white bird, slightly to the right.

    @Tejh0 - As discussed in comments prior to yours, two chicks have died and will nourish other animals. The white Snowy sheathbill should be marked. It's on your Other list.

    @mekad.barev - Yes, two chicks have died. The white bird is a Snowy sheathbill. The food helps it stay alive and feed its young.

    oops, I didn't mark the dead penguin on the upper right. I thought it was a blood stain.

    Oh, @ferrell11 - It's right not to mark any dead animals. check out our newly polished FAQs, eh? 😃

    @Polipino - Questi sono tutti i pinguini Gentoo, con uno chionis Snowy. Tre pinguini sono adulti. Purtroppo, due pulcini sono morti.

    Yes, the chicks that die will feed skua or sheathbill chicks. Nothing is wasted.
